Danny Peary's Cult Movies series
Based on films included by critic Danny Peary in Cult Movies (1981, Delta), Cult Movies 2 (1983, Dell), and Cult Movies 3 (1988, Fireside).
"Cult movies are special films which for one reason or another have been taken to heart by segments of the movie audience, cherished, protected, and most of all, enthusiastically championed. […] Cult films are born in controversy, in arguments over quality, theme, talent and other matters. Cultists believe they are among the blessed few who have discovered something in particular that the average moviegoer and critic have missed – the something that makes the pictures extraordinary.”
